• 1 container (11 fluid ounces) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Almond Cooking Milk, divided
  • 5 to 6 slices white bread, cubed (about 5 cups)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup (1 medium) fresh or thawed, frozen peaches, peeled and chopped
  • 7 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 1/3 cup fresh or thawed, frozen peaches
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly butter 8-inch-square baking dish. Refrigerate 1/3 cup almond milk for Creamy Glaze.
Step 2
Place bread cubes evenly into prepared baking dish. Combine eggs, remaining 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup peaches, 3 tablespoons sugar, vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in large bowl. Pour egg-peach mixture over the bread cubes and lightly mix until cubes have absorbed much of the liquid.
Step 3
Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon in small bowl. Sprinkle mixture over the top of bread mixture. Sprinkle almonds over sugar mixture.
Step 4
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until the top of the casserole is golden.
Step 5
Place 1/3 cup peaches in blender; cover. Puree until smooth. Add remaining 1/3 cup almond milk that was refrigerated, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, grated lemon peel and juice to peaches. Blend until smooth. Adjust flavors as needed.
Step 6
Serve casserole warm with a drizzle of creamy glaze.
1) Consider adding different types of fresh, frozen or dried fruits to the casserole, like berries or raisins.
2) Whole-grain bread can be substituted for the white.
